On the 10th August, 78 students set off from Kingswood to tour North America for the first ever visit to Canada and the USA by Kingswood touring teams. Three hockey sides and two rugby teams enjoyed matches against opposition in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Bellingham and California. Our hockey sides enjoyed strong competition with the 1st team returning unbeaten and significant improvement in the standard of play by all the teams throughout the tour. The boys' rugby sides also returned unbeaten. The 1st team won all their matches, convincingly playing some outstanding rugby. The 2nd team had more evenly contested matches but evolved into a very good side winning their final match well against a strong San Diego representative side.
